I sold my Texas business in Nov 99. As part of a signed contract I agreed not to compete within 30 Miles and 3 years. The L.L.C. I sold my business to sold the business to another party in sept 2000.

My question; The covenent not to compete is it now void or not?



Depends on the contract. Was it binding on the assigns of the LLC? If you really want to get back in to the business, pay an attorney a few hundred for an opinion letter saying whether you can or can't start up the business.
